Breakfast Wassail Recipe

Publisher Photo
This fruity beverage is great all year-round, and tasty hot or chilled. I got the recipe from a co-worker and made it one Christmas for a family gathering. Now whenever we get together for the holidays, I'm the designated wassail-maker.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 17, 2013

"Tangy and festive! I never know whether recipes are calling for 100% cranberry juice, which is very tart (and expensive), or a cranberry juice blend, which is sweeter (and cheaper). I used a bit of both. Which type you use will determine whether your wassail will need more water or the addition of sugar."

"I made this for a small group breakfast and it was a hit. I made it the night before and served it cold."

"The additional water is definitely necessary as this punch can be sweet. It made the house smell wonderful as I cooked it!"

"This beverage has a lovely tangy taste, and was enjoyed by our brunch bunch. I kept it warm in the slow cooker; we also drank it over ice and it was delicious."
